that it's falling on the official day of martin luther king. >> god must have preplanned that. i didn't get it at first. then all of a sudden i said it's dr. king's birthday, the day we're going to celebrate. so it's been a wonderful day. i had the opportunity to post a lot of pictures of obama and dr. king on my website and do some things, have conversations with people about the struggle as well as how did -- or how they feel about obama becoming president and how they feel about him winning a second time around. >> what are you hearing? >> people are really, really pleased about that. in washington, d.c. of course, you know, this is a democratic town. we were so happy that the democrats won one more time. so i'm personally real pleased by that. >> one of the things people started to jump to conclusions, we're in a post-racial society right now. and we heard the conversation moving forward we still have a long way to go but he was elected a second time. that has to be another step in the right direction. >> you're absolutely right. at my age, i never thought that i would live to see

luther king jr., we've got something very special to share with you. previously unreleased interviews with dr. king in atlanta have now been discovered. the 32-year-old civil rights leader was then talking about how at the age of 5 years old he first became conscious of racism and how his mother tried to instill a sense of pride over inferiority in those difficult times. >> it seems to me that the only thing the mother can do, the negro mother, is to try from the beginning to instill in the child a sense of somebody-ness. this is what my mother tried to do. she made it very clear that in spite of these conditions, you are as good as anybody else, and you must not feel that you are not. this was her way of saying you should not have an inferiority complex. need a tow or lock your keys in the car, geico's emergency roadside assistance is there 24/7. oh dear, i got a flat tire. hmmm. uh... yeah, can you find a take where it's a bit more dramatic on that last line, yeah? yeah i got it right here. someone help me!!! i have a flat tire!!! well it's good... good for me. what do you think? ge

produced -- that is my own assessment -- martin luther king, jr. [applause] so the president will clearly be in the foreground, but dr. king looms large as the backdrop. now, word comes from the white house that they will use his bible for this historic and iconic celebration, so we will talk tonight about how we honor the legacy of dr. king by focusing more attention on the issue that he gave his life for -- the poor. king once said we have to civilize ourselves by the immediate abolition of poverty. obviously, we are not quite there yet, but we of tonight's conversation will aid us and of that as in trying to make sure that we look out for the least among us. i am pleased tonight to be joined by an all-star panel. i want to introduce them one by one and jumped right into the conversation. i want to start by thanking c- span for carrying this program live around the world tonight.

of tremendous symbolism here. first of all he's using martin luther king's bible and the lincoln bible. we're talking about lincoln with the movie. this is the 150th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation. there is a monument to dr. king. 50 years after "i have a dream" there is a memorial to this man. this story of race slavery, civil rights and involvement in our history is so important. i think it's really significant to have all these symbols together on this very significant day. >> president barack obama is the 44th american president. we have had 20 two-term presidents. how have two-term presidents fathered? >> recently not so well if we think about recent controversies, they tend to come in the second term. i don't know if that's just a coincidence. bill clinton's impeachment, of course. george bush had a lot of his presidency starting to unravel in the second term. richard nixon, watergate in the second term. for ronald reagan iran contra. it may be that people have been around too long and they get a little sloppy. some of those things preceded the second
